Hi, my name is Sandy. I live in Sacremento, CA and I've been a caregiver for four years.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because of my grandpa, I've been taking care of him, it really opened up my eyes and made me realize maybe I wanted to do this for a living and I've been doing it ever since.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver, be a very good listener, be very helpful, always keep your eyes out for anybody that needs help and a helping hand is always the best.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client that I will never forget is when she learned how to get back on her feet with her walker, started walking again, encouragement and it made me happy because I got to be by her side while she get back on her feet, seeing her everyday, encouraging her, help her to smile, It made me very proud of myself because I was able to help her with that.
